Pedro Porro took one back for his side of Girona, but Marcos Llorente claimed a third goal for the visiting team from 25 yards long. Gareth Bale, forward for Wales, came on to the field as a substitute and played the last 23 minutes for his team. The match ended 3-1 in the second leg with Real Madrid in lead.
